    Academia da Cacha?a: Cacha?a

    by Lady_Disdain Written Apr 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This bar is dedicated to cacha?a, the typical brazilian spirit, distilled from sugar cane. Dozens of different cacha?as, each made in a different sugar cane plantation, are available, from 51 or Velho Barreiro (the "basic" cahca?a) to artisan cacha?as, carefully distilled and matured.

    And, to go along with your cacha?a, delicious northeastern dishes such as escondidinho (beef jerky or prawns under a layer of manioc puree and cheese gratin), arrumadinho (sun dried beef served with feij?o de corda - a kind of bean- and manioc flour) and many others.

    Many families with children frequent this restaurant, as well, for lunch.

    Favorite Dish: Escondidinho and bean broth.

    Academia de Cachaca: Cachaca heaven

    Do not miss this one as the area and this restaurant are very lively filled with locals and some tourists to this off beach bar with plent of tables on the street and a lively atmosphere late into the night. As you can tell by the name this place specializes in cachaca the national sugar cane drink and of course caprinha the national drink made from such. The selling point is the over 500 varieties some of which are detailed in the cachaca menu(I highly recommend the 54 percent alcohol from paraiba). You are not likely to find this in the states though Pitu, and 54 can be found here and some liquour/wine stores in the USA. The food is good as we had Acaraje which is a bahain dish made from chick peas an served with a tomato like sauce an shrimp. Spice it up a bit with some pimenta(malangueta). Do site outside though the inside bar area is nice to look at just to see the sheer number of cachaca bottles on the wall.

    Favorite Dish: Cachaca cachaca and the drinks made from it. Drink it straight or in a caprinha or in one of the other drinks on their menu.
